I AM IN HERE!

Finally after literally months of waiting and not telling anyone, the day has come!  My quilt is in the latest  McCall's Quilting America Makes Fast Quilts Spring 2012  

I am sooo excited!   (Disclaimer:  There may be excessive amounts of exclamation points used in this post)

Here is the cover.
See that blue and red quilt all rolled up right under the 'Q' in 'Quilts', that is MY QUILT!
They named it 'Stripe Delight'.   How perfect!  

This is the way they displayed it in the magazine.   I don't have a copy yet, but you can bet I will be buying one as soon as I can!

I used 'Delighted' fabric by The Quilted Fish of Riley Blake Fabrics

This quilt was created because I just started playing with blocks one day and ended up making a neat pattern with them.   I had never used stripes much and enjoyed seeing them divide up the blocks.   Apparently McCall's Quilting magazine thought so too, as they decided to use my quilt... and the rest they say is history!

Very cool! But I have a question! How did this come to be? Did you submit a sample or pattern to them, or did they approach you?

How exciting! What a wonderful treat for you! By the way, Whenever I got things published, many in my family just said so what? does your family get excited for you or do they try not to notice. My mother used to say, I was just looking for attention...
